About Us
I search out items with TIMELESS APPEAL from COMPANIES YOU KNOW for your home, yourself,or for a special gift. I mainly limit my store to a few categories which keep me more than busy: STEMWARE, SILVER, PORCELAIN, TEXTILES, ART GLASS, LIGHTING and BOOKS. I'm populating each category as time permits; keep checking back or subscribe to my opt - in email for alerts on the latest. Opt out at any time.

In my MIDWEST area people have BETTER TO EXCELLENT QUALITY ITEMS of MODERATE COST. They bought American or made it themselves unless it was a keepsake from the "old country." They valued PRACTICAL, DURABLE THINGS. I'm a reader and a college literature grad; the books I gather are things I enjoy, use for research, cooking, or quilting.

I am working to earn your trust and your trade. My items are ORIGINAL, UNDAMAGED (unless stated otherwise), carefully RESEARCHED and EXPLAINED in my listings. If I make an error, I'll admit it.

Who doesn't like GREAT QUALITY at a GREAT PRICE? I strive to buy my items right so I can bring you THE VINTAGE YOU LOVE AT PRICES YOU CAN AFFORD.
Note that Ruby Lane's minimum allowed prices are $5 on collectables, $10 on books, $50 on lighting, $100 on antiques.
